For much of its existence, Match of the Day has relied on a cast of former players and managers to provide its colour. After all, they should be able to offer more insight than us mere mortals, right?
Instead of picking the men whose primary job has been kicking a ball, what if they went with someone who writes about the game on a daily basis, and whose job it is to convey expert opinion in an eloquent manner? Recruiting a journalist might be the push that MOTD needs to make itself stand out among the football analysis TV shows.
The Times' Henry Winter would be a top choice, as he is always good value on Sunday Supplement. Other good journalist choices may include Gabriele Marcotti, Barry Glendenning or Jonathan Wilson. And for a higher level of tactical discussion, they could do much worse than Zonal Marking's Michael Cox.
